AT 4040 vs. 4050
« on: November 05, 2004, 08:58:58 pm »

Does the AT 4040 utilize the same 2-micron gold diaphragm as the 4050?  (& the same transformerless solid-state circuitry?)  Is the only difference between the two the added pickup patterns on the 4050?

Would the 4040 sound the same as the 4050 in a cardioid pattern?

Or is the 4050 better quality all the way around?

Still looking for a quality studio LDC vocal mic; & have narrowed my search down to Audio Technica.  I have tested the 4040 with my voice, but certain tracking types are telling me to go with the 4050.  But is the only difference I'm seeing the added pickup patterns on the 4050?  Someone else told me the 4050 is a better LDC mic for "digital" recording...but, then...I thought that's what we all do.

Thanks,
